For the last three years, The Game has been putting in work on his “final” album,
Westside Story Born 2 Rap. And now, after a couple questionable promotional moves (branded condoms), the Compton rapper has finally come through–dropping in the midst of a crazy Black Friday line-up.
“I’ve had a great run and surpassed my rap goals along time ago,” The Game says. “It’s by God’s grace that I’m able to still be here to deliver full projects at this caliber in an industry where I’ve seen artists come and go. It will always be ‘quality’ over ‘quantity’ from where I stand. The REAL music will always prevail and this album will cap off an amazing run… I put everything I had into this album. My true fans deserve this classic.”
Locked in at a lengthy 25 tracks, including “Westside” and “Stainless” with Anderson .Paak, the feature-heavy album includes guest spots from 21 Savage, Bryson Tiller, Dom Kennedy (who doubles as executive producer), Mozzy, Travis Barker, Marsha Ambrosius, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Ed Sheeran, Rhythm & Flow winner (and SiR’s brother) D. Smoke, and more. There’s also a feature from the late Nipsey Hussle on “Welcome Home.”
